About A Night of Light
For 33 years, the Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) has served the North Texas area by providing education, training and consulting services to over 5,000 individuals and 2,500 nonprofits. CNM consultants help nonprofits achieve organizational efficiency to maximum impact for every dollar spent. CNM’s work means more meals for the homeless, more rooms for the battered, and more books for underserved children. CNM’s services allow the nonprofit sector of North Texas to flourish through continuing professional education, fundraising classes, financial restructuring and even providing short term loans to nonprofits in crisis.
In order to support CNM’s efforts, A Night of Light was created in 2001 to recognize and celebrate nonprofit excellence in North Texas. A Night of Light is an awards dinner that celebrates the stars of the nonprofit community as well as fundraises for CNM to continue its work. A Night of Light serves as CNM’s largest fundraiser so that CNM can continue to strengthen nonprofits, enhancing each nonprofit’s sustainability and maximizing its impact upon the community.
Now in its thirteenth year, A Night of Light’s Awards of Excellence are $5,000 cash awards given to nonprofit organizations, individuals and corporations recognizing excellence in nonprofit management and the outstanding contribution the nonprofit sector makes to the community. In a highly competitive application process, an independent panel of judges selects three finalists in five categories, and a sixth category, Community Choice Award, is voted on and selected by the community. Since its inception, A Night of Light has awarded 69 agencies and individuals with $5,000 cash awards, a giving total of $345,000!
Winners in the six categories receive an unrestricted grant of $5,000, a crystal award from Tiffany & Co., a voucher for CNM services, and an American Airlines travel voucher. Winners are announced LIVE at A Night of Light.
